Cycle through Italy, from the unique city of Venice on the Adriatic Coast to Rome, the Italian capital, renowned for its ancient history.

This exciting challenge will take you south on flat roads from the canals of Venice, crossing farmland and waterways. You will then come to the rolling hills of Tuscany and Umbria, passing terracotta-roofed towns with striking bell-towers and Renaissance churches, and small traditional villages hidden among the fertile fields growing corn, fruit and olives. 

The terrain is hilly, with some long climbs and steep gradients – it’s wonderful cycling country, but not to be undertaken without training! After coming down out of the hills on the last day you will have a relatively flat run-in to Rome, where you will finish a stone’s throw away from some of the main sights. This trip combines diverse, challenging cycling with a wonderful Italian experience.
